Nice little treat

There is something special about running clubs and clubs in general such that outside we may come from different walks of life or social backgrounds but the memberships is a grounding where we do have a meeting of minds and a joined experience. I have often discussed my amazement that I have run with a person for months knowing very little about them but the day I see him/her in a business suit on the train they are a different person who I may not necessarily want to talk to.

Take Tuesday for example, I was hanging around at the meeting point, talking the usual stuff of upcoming events, training, injuries and the like; A lady runner approached me and out of the blue said "I have been meaning to give these to you for months Jerry as they have been in my bag....enjoy" to which she handed eight satchets of High 5 Zeros in various flavours worth about £5.00....then disappeared into the pack.

Chuffed is not the word...bloody marvellous is, as I will be taking a few with me on Saturday, decadent I know, but tasty nonetheless :-)

    1. Johann, I have probably spoken about 3 times all together and I seem to recall that I said I liked these particular isotonic tablets and she must have remembered....nice of her.

  2. Runners are great! I will say the same about long distance hikers.

    1. Ewa, definitely long distant walkers, there is a certain camaraderie you don't find in other sports
